Trianon Gallery partners with Lethbridge Soup Kitchen

June 18, 2020

COVID-19 has impacted our local artists. The Trianon Gallery in downtown Lethbridge is no different. Gallery owner, and a Lethbridge film production company partnered to sell paintings, while helping out a charitable organization simultaneously.

Nick Bohle, owner and founder of HatChap productions, wanted to help out his friends at the Trianon Gallery. He directed and composed a video to promote local artist, Robert Bechtel.

"I usually do lots of different stuff, like short films and music videos — commercials and stuff like that, but this project seemed like a very worthwhile project. I felt like it was a good move for my heart".

Bechtel creates about one painting per day.  His exhibit Studium has more than 200 pieces. 

"For me art is like a mystery and I like kind of the mystery of painting. Hopefully it will open up their imagination so they can see things differently," says the veteran artist.

"He's so understated. His art is so reasonably priced, and he continues to make art at a very prolific rate," says Trianon Gallery Owner, John Savill.

Half of the proceeds from this exhibit will be going directly toward the Lethbridge Soup Kitchen.

"We would like to promote the show a little more, and donate something back," adds Savill.

"The more we can create positive interactions between facets of our community, the more we're going to be able to grow towards something we're proud of, that we're excited about, and that we want to share with everyone else," says Bohle.

If you’re interested in purchasing, you’ll need to set up an appointment with John Sahvil. He can be reached at 403-380-2787 or Trianon@savillarchitecture.com.
